Sensitive Collections Statement
The Ohio History Connection Collections are comprised of many culturally significant materials. Some were created to be private or confidential and are now accessible as part of the historical record. Some contain offensive images, language or content which reflect the creators’ views or those of the period in which they were created, written or recorded. Many are not appropriate by today’s standards of respectful expression and actions. They serve as reminders of the importance of increased cultural competency, inclusion and equity.
We recognize our past role in promoting these perspectives, and we are working to ensure that the histories we preserve and interpret today encompass the experiences of all those who have called Ohio home. There is much work yet to do. Please view our new strategic plan to see where we are headed.
Please note that as part of our commitment to presenting American Indian perspectives, the Ohio History Connection complies with the directives of authorized tribal representatives regarding the public presentation of images and information from their ancestral communities. We do this in accordance with federal law and our American Indian Policy.
